Sibusiso Vilakazi’s Comeback Goal Boosts Sekhukhune United
Truter Thrilled for Striker’s First Goal in Two Years
Sekhukhune United head coach Brandon Truter expressed his delight for striker Sibusiso Vilakazi, who scored his first goal in two years for the club, pushing Babina Noko into sixth place on the DStv Premiership log with 32 points.
Crucial Goal in the DStv Premiership
Vilakazi’s goal proved to be of great importance, as it condemned Maritzburg United to the bottom of the log with only five matches remaining. Truter is optimistic about seeing more from the former Mamelodi Sundowns player in the rest of the season.
Teammates’ Joyful Reaction
Truter highlighted the positive response from the team following Vilakazi’s goal, saying, “We could see the reaction from all his teammates and the bench as well.” The goal was significant not only for the team, but also for Vilakazi and his family.
Building Momentum for the Remaining Matches
With five games left to play, Truter hopes Vilakazi can continue to build on his recent success. The coach also praised Mabasa’s efforts in training, suggesting that the combination of Letsoalo, Mabasa, and Vilakazi could form a formidable front three.
Strengthening Midfield Support
Truter acknowledges the need for adjustments in the midfield to accommodate the potential of the front three. “We have to work around that and see what we can get from the midfield as well to accommodate that type of front three,” he said.
A “Massive Shift” for Sekhukhune United
The coach expressed his happiness for Vilakazi and the entire team, recognizing the importance of this achievement. “I’m happy for Vila, I’m happy for everyone, in fact it was a massive shift,” Truter remarked.
As the DStv Premiership season approaches its conclusion, Vilakazi’s timely goal has provided a much-needed boost for Sekhukhune United. Truter and his team will hope to build on this momentum in their remaining fixtures, aiming for a strong finish in the league standings. With a possible front three of Letsoalo, Mabasa, and Vilakazi, Sekhukhune United has the potential to finish the season on a high note.
